Great reminder. Learning to spot some early warning signs to help prevent this crime from happening is an ultimate goal as online scams still on the rise. I appreciate the fact you drill down to the small details how scams are being made and I think it's important. bringing up the scam details, helps to understand in what situation we are at. I was a victim of a romance scam. Please help get the word out! it doesn't matter if you are based in the US or Canada, but all voice help! This has become an epidemic...and the embarrassment and shame keeps the victims from coming forward...Please come forward!!!! Thank you all for your support. If you can help by reporting on online you have to through FTC or [email protected]
certified government officials that offers a list of investigation and restitution services for free that can assist you. if you have been a victim to online scams the agency can assist you. It was helpful in my case, reporting the scam helps them take one step towards arresting the scammers. These scammers will never be stopped if all the victims, us, keep silent. Help the Feds build their database of Crimes to help stop this. You’re not alone, there’s millions of us.

From what I understand you can email your phone service provider and tell them to only allow a new SIM card if you are psychically there to do I don’t know why none of these videos mention this but I feel it’s the safest way to protect your info
